The Slippery Slope: Fall Into Great Skin

cocoa buttercoconut oil

Today I want to talk about 2 all-natural beauty products for my skin that I love–don’t sleep on it!

Have you ever wanted skin so soft, shiny and well-moisturized that when you went to get into the bed, you slid the heck right off of it? Well, even if you haven’t, Better Shea’s Pure Unrefined Cocoa butter is the best!  I have it on good authority that this is what Michelle Obama, Tina Turner and Beyonce are using on their infamous shiny gams!

It comes in a natural state–the block that’s shown above.  And the great thing about this company is that you can download an free all-natural recipe book which includes various uses for the Cocoa Butter.  Me personally, I’m a busy girl, and so I do the most basic–I slice off a few slivers and keep it in a bottle.  Prior to showering, I fill the sink full of hot water, and let the bottle sit in it while showering.  Once I’m out, it’s fully melted into it’s yummy oil form and ready to go!

I put this on my skin, and the shine and smoothness lasts until the next shower! It’s a little too oily for the face though. And the smell…ahhh…my husband tells me I smell like sugar cookies–don’t hate, participate!  It’s ahh-maze-ing! And with proper storage, this huge block lasts a century!

Now for those of you that don’t like to glisten like new pennies, my second choice is Coconut Oil.  I’m sure all of you have heard about everyone singing the praises of coconut oil, but ’tis true!  It’s really great for sensitive skin.  It soaks in really well, and this one is light enough that I can use it on my face.  Remember to get Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil so you can reap the many benefits this lovely natural product provides.

I found both of these products on Amazon for great prices!

    Whoops I pressed the send button too quick. I was not done! I used to buy the big tub of Palmers cocoa butter (the solid formula) and I got through it so quick.. But I will DEFINITELY try the cocoa butter you have .. It is such a good idea! Thanks for this post and the inspiration sweetie!

    I love natural beauty products!! I like how you mentioned leaving the bottle in hot water to let the cocoa butter slivers melt while showering. I’m always looking for time-saving tricks like that! Have you used coconut oil as a makeup remover as well?

      Hi Dottie,

      Nice to hear from you! I love natural beauty products too. I have really sensitive skin and I like things that are good for my body!

      No, I haven’t…funny story…I use wet wipes! Lol. I have a 2 year old son…they absolutely work for EVERYTHING!

      Have you tried coconut oil for makeup removal? What do you think of it?

        Oh, I hear you! Wet Wipes are amazing, and they do work for everything! I’ve used them as makeup removers as well.

        The thing is, I use waterproof mascara, and I found that coconut oil does a splendid job of gently removing it along with my eye makeup. The same goes for long-wear foundation–the coconut oil just cleans it right off. It just gets a little messy, that’s all. =)

        Please let me know what you think if you try coconut oil for makeup removal!
